9:38 am
>> exactly. >> and after a workout picking higher protein foods like yogurt, milk, nuts will help you boost the effects of your worko workout. >> schedule a colonoscopy in the morning. why is that? >> if you schedule it first thing in the morning, there's less physician fatigue in the morning and better polyp detection rates. bowel prep quality is usually better in the morning as well, and then another way of making it better is to ask for certain ways of taking your prep, do a split-dose prep or small dose at night. >> the stuff you have to drink beforehand to help you go. >> exactly. >> and another dose a few hours before your procedure or do a low-volume prep. >> okay. when should you start having colonoscopies, always a good reminder? >> always start at 50. usually that's a good line. >> okay. next, a lot of people swear by the 3:00 p.m. coffee to help perk them up, or even maybe taking a catnap. you say do a combination, so
9:39 am
you're saying drink a little coffee and then have as. >> reporter: >> completely counterintuitive, a caffein nap and it makes sense and here's why. caffein, if you drink it prior to your nap, takes about 20 minutes to get into your system and wake you back up, so when you wake up from that nap you've had a short nap and wake up feeling refreshed. if you nap longer than 20 minutes, you usually wake up feeling very groggy, so caffein naps are actually the best way to go. >> okay. going to do that this afternoon hopefully. now, if you do opt for tea instead of coffee, you say how you prepare your tea can also be more healthy. >> this is true, and i'm a huge tea lover, but even i forget to brew tea for longer than about five minutes. brewing tea for at least five minutes will really boost some of the health qualities of tea, like increasining flavanoids, a way to make tea a super food. unfortunately, they are adding milk to tea or a lot of sugar to tea will drop that super food
9:40 am
quality to tea. we know that for example tea has great health benefits and really preventing against cardiovascular disease but in britain where they add milk to tea we don't see that like here in the u.s. and the netherlands. >> let it steep for ten minute and at the lemon. >> exactly. >> don't brush your teeth immediately after meals. why is that? >> brushing is a healthy habit but here's what happens. when you brush immediately after a meal the acidic foods will soften the enamel. if you wait about an hour after eating then the saliva helps to harden that enamel and another quick trick is rinse your mouth with water or tea because that will cut down the acid and the germs in your mouth at that time. >> back to the tea, unsweetened tea. >> exactly. >> last tip is just mix things up a bit. so what does this do? do things a little bit differently. >> yes. mixing things up like walking backwards or brushing with the opposite hand or rearranging your furniture challenges the brain, and what we know is that
9:41 am
when you switch it up a little bit, then you really focus, the brain learns to focus better, and then if you have a difficult task to perform right after that, you usually perform it much better. >> don't try walking backwards throughout manhattan streets. >> exactly. >> or on a treadmill backwards or something. >> correct. >> doctor, great tips as always, thanks so much. >> thank you. coming up next, danny devito and rhea perlman call it quits. the details right after this. i'm done!
